ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Inviolet Row/Consolation Prizes

Inviolet Row reminds me most, actually, of the Church - that legendary Aussie band who never really achieved the kind of success in the Northern Hemisphere that their countrymen INXS and Midnight Oil did, despite being scads better than either of those bands, which were pretty damn good in their own right. Front man Lee Scrivner's lyrics are just as lovely and often as obscure as those of Steve Kilbey, the Church's lead singer and bassist.

Scrivner told me that they'd been mixing and producing Consolation Prizes for months. Any band given that amount of time to play around with the music inevitably gets its Pink Floyd on: weird chorus effects, strange strings and Jim Steinman backing vocals. Pretentiousness is not always a bad thing ...

Too many bands these days want to be Radiohead, and most of them have neither the talent nor the wit to do so. Inviolet Row isn't Radiohead - but they could be, someday, and they're probably the closest thing we have out here in the Great Neon Golgotha [Las Vegas].

Bruce Lomet (CHINASKI)

Dreamy and Profound
Inviolet Row has created a lush sonic landscape with each of the tracks on this album. The songs veer from dreamy to profound, often in the same song. Unlike many tunes on the radio today, each of these cuts delivers a payoff to the listener that will have you listening to this album over and over.

Gustavo Krieger

Music for the spirit.
This is a great album and an amazing discovery. I have bought mainly because of the 2 minutes snapshot of Orange Horns, a song so incredible it's worth the price. But it's not the only great song! I confess in the first days I didn't fall for the rest of the album. But as the days passed, I begin to discover it. Lady Libertine is so beautiful, there is Shoot for the Moon... This band is the true thing. I recommend it.
